DA405: Data Visualization and Communication

Certificate Track: Data Analytics

The human brain processes visuals 60,000 times faster than it processes text, so it makes sense to represent data visually, especially when trying to make a business case. Data Visualization is a form of storytelling that provides an effective way to draw conclusions and share insights. Analyzing data is complex; there are massive data sets, countless variables, and statistical calculations. Succinctly presenting the results can be a challenge, but when done well, it is very powerful and allows people to express big ideas in simple ways. This interactive course is designed to help participants learn the methods, tools and techniques to best understand and present complex data so that they can persuasively share results and influence decisions.
